If you needed further proof that the United Nations has become a complete joke, you’re in luck. The UN has just selected Saudi Arabia to head a women’s rights commission.
The Jerusalem Post reports:
UN ELECTS SAUDI ARABIA TO WOMEN’S RIGHTS COMMISSION
Saudi Arabia was elected via secret ballot in the UN Economic and Social Council to the 45-member UN Commission on the Status of Women last week.
Twelve other countries were also elected by the council in Geneva to serve for a four-year term, ending in 2022: Algeria, Comoros, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Iraq, Japan, South Korea, Turkmenistan, Ecuador, Haiti and Nicaragua.
“It’s absurd,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, which publicized the story on Sunday. “Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief,” Neuer added.
“Saudi discrimination against women is gross and systematic in law and in practice. Every Saudi woman must have a male guardian who makes all critical decisions on her behalf, controlling a woman’s life from her birth until death.
Only the UN would select a country where women aren’t even allowed to drive cars to head a commission on this subject.
